1.Both has to file notice within the groom jurisdiction.
2.One copy of notice will be sent to the bride native
3.After 30 days the bride has to get NOC from bride local registrar office and should submit the same in Marriage registrar office in which the notice to intend marriage is pending.
After receipt of NOC the marriage registrar will solemnize the marriage and will issue the certificate
(If any one is foreign national,additionally they have to produce the single status certificate issued by ministry of External Affair.)

You can prefer customary marriage .after solemnisation of customary marriage you can register the same legally.i think this is also one day process.
